While the first book in the Battle Born series wasn't awful, the second is a significant improvement. Where the first felt very middle school, whiny teenager sympathetic, this felt a little more high school and like the characters were really coming together because they cared about one another, not just because of the circumstances they were thrown into (though there was a fair bit of that). I also really appreciate that for a book based on a video game franchise, it would translate well into a ...more

This is kind of a meh book, in the Halo universe and out of it.

On the one hand, the characters are somehow more bland here then in the previous one. But the personal conflict is more present.

I say present and not interesting, because the protagonists are acting like a bunch of teenagers.
Yes, I know they are teenagers, but they are also teenagers who have completed basic training, to the point where there's hardly any difference with the regular militia they're fighting along with. Yet they act

Not sure what I expected from a Halo young adult series, but so far it's pretty underwhelming. Much less character growth than the first Battle Born, and in some areas, the characters seemed to grow less mature and more childish throughout this story. The ending... No spoilers but it's a bit strange. I guess we'll see where they take it, but it worries me how it might conflict with existing canon.

I'm not sure who this book is for, because I figure young adults would get more enjoyment out of the

Great book, looking forward to the next iteration

This is a good series, written a little differently than most of the halo novella and I like it. A fresh portrayel of the halo universe seen through younger eyes.

A little less focussed and somewhat more contrived than the first, but still a really good read with well-defined characters.

I listened to this book via Audible.

Meridian Divide is the second Young Adult Halo book, a direct sequel to the first one, Battle Born. We get to see the adventures of Evie, Dorian, Saskia, and Victor continue, with Spartan Owen-B096 joining them again as well. The resourceful teens previously managed to evacuate their city during a Covenant invasion and escaped the moon they called home. Now they must return and attempt to thwart the Covenant's continued search for Forerunner relics.

We get to s
